Hello BugBear,
I don't know if it's a bug but everytime I start a race in custom event with a different car, i'm everytime first and I would like to start randomly or to choose our grid before the race.  :P

I also would like the option for a random start with AI in custom event race. Who want start up front with the AI?  Where the fun in that? :P

Currently the grid position is determined by inverted grid order based on performance points, i.e. the faster the car is the more back it starts.

So it's impossible to start last for me because I never upgrade my cars against the AI ? And it happend with every car, except yesterday where I started with other car (sunrise and american1) 1 time, so I began another one and I started 1st again :s

A random grid would be sweet! selectable if possible.

So, any further input on this one? Selectable grid position is not possible, so it's either the current, random, first or last.

Then I'd say random is better. You lose some, you win some.

If custom isn't possible, then maybe you could allow random generator button in start race menu, so you could randomize until happy? Probably bit lame workaround if possible...

That's a pretty unique solution, like lottery :)

If only can pick one, random my choice.  If you don't like your car position, restart the race.

Janne, would I get a random start if I do a restart or would I have quit race and start race again from the menu to get a random car start?
